Though this print has significant damages, the composition is largely unaffected. Notably, several impressions illustrated in online collections also show large damages, e.g that in the Wellcome Collection.

Condition: Fair condition. Print is stuck down, so difficult to see its exact condition. Several large creases, or tears. Small holes, stains and foxing. See photos.
